Actor Shivaji, who has been a part of several successful low-budget Telugu films over the years, says that such kind of movies guarantee high returns over those that are lavishly made on a high budget and low content value.
Shivaji is now busy promoting his upcoming movie Boochamma Boochodu, which is a
low-budget horror-comedy film. Talking to media, he said, "I have
starred in several low-budget films. The success rate of my films
is higher than several star-studded films that are made on a
minimum budget of Rs 30 crore. The problem with all the big-budget
films is that quality of content takes a toll in the end."
The actor added, "A movie made in Rs 25 crore may earn Rs 30
crore at the Box Office. But it would have made less profit
compared to a Rs 5 crore film that earns about Rs 20 crore at the
ticket window. A low-budget film with good content always
guarantees high returns."
Shivaji's latest Boochamma Boochodu is slated to
release on Friday. Shivaji said, "The film has been lying in the
cans for a while now. The problem with small films is that they
don't get theatres for release. Theatres are controlled by
producers who favour films featuring stars. Many small films with
good content seldom have limited release due to lack of
Boochamma Boochodu also features Kainaz Motiwala, Brahmanandam, Srinivas Reddy and Tagubothu Ramesh in important roles.
